Just a comment on using a WEP cracking programs. I heard from Keith Parsons who is an expert wireless teacher saying that WEP cracking in the wild today

In early 2002 all vendors saw the weak IV as an attack. So they changed the firmware to no longer support those weak IV's. If you want to crack WEP it
will most likely be on an AP that has a firmware version prior to 2002.
